The effort this year focused primarily on 118-GHz transmittance experiments. The data analyzed here was collected with the Microwave Temperature Sounder (MTS) radiometer package during the CAMEX deployment of 1993 with the aim of validating current models of atmospheric microwave absorption in the O2 bands near 54 and 118 GHz. Particular attention has been paid to data collected during four flights when the MTS scanned zenith while profiles of downwelling radiances were collected through ascents and descents. These radiances, in conjunction with radiosonde temperature data, permit the retrieval of band-averaged absorption profiles for each channel. The Millimeter-wave Propagation Model (MPM92) provides theoretical expressions for the absorption of microwaves by oxygen and water vapor and accounts for the interference of pressure-broadened spectral lines'. This model is a good fit to laboratory measurements at temperatures ranging from 279-327 K, but it has been suggested that extrapolation to the conditions of the atmospheric tropopause may result in underestimation of absorption by as much as 15 percent. Preliminary results of the analysis of MTS data appear to be in general agreement with the predictions of the MPM model to within the accuracy of the measurements, which through the coldest parts of the atmosphere ranges from less than plus or minus 5 percent in the most opaque channels to greater than plus or minus 10 percent in the most transparent channels. At those altitudes where each channel is most sensitive to changes in absorption, there is some indication that the modeled absorption may be biased low relative to the observations. Accurate instrument calibration provided challenges, particularly when observed radiances were as much as 260 K below the temperatures of the cold calibration load.
